“Through this course we hope to learn the ins and outs of event planning and how to manage the potential risks that come with bringing a crowd of people together. Although some of us may not go on to become event planners in the future, we have recognized that we use a lot of the same skills that event planners do in everyday life.”  Kennedy Carter, team leader
